This Father Frost carries a toy bag over his shoulder and smiles from his rosy complexioned face as he brings forth the spirit of the holidays.  Santa appears to be striding, with a toe peeking out from the front of his robe, and a heel from the back, an extra detail of the carver.  Additionally, his robe is painted in a style unique to this artist, Nataliya, with its many-layered and "frosted" appearance. The technique requires applying a coat of paint and then quickly, yet precisely, removing a portion before it dries, leaving a thin layer of pattern. Nataliya's meticulous attention to detail is exquisite.

Artist: Nataliya Trefanova
